Haiku December 25, 2012 Peace on Earth

A voice sang from woods

Peace on earth, goodwill to man

Many answered call!!

Art Prescription:  Beautiful Christmas day here in North Carolina. Spent it with my soul-mate walking in the woods, doing a Christmas day bird count, and a bit of sketching…bliss…shear bliss. I highly recommend it. This new year go out and buy yourself a sketchbook. Simply take notice of your surroundings. Especially when you are too busy…just ten minutes of joy and a change in brain chemistry!

poinsettia bird song

Haiku October 17, 2012 Mockingbird

Sits proud in tree top

Full breast gleams in late day sun

Master of all song.

Art Prescription:  Mockingbirds have many personalities. They can be jesters or intimidating…or should I say imitating? A large repertoire, they enjoy solo performances. Other birds call out to mates, but the Mockingbird sings for the crowd.

Haiku October 10, 2012 Delicate Life

Delicamente

A song for long precious life.

Holidays are here!

Art Prescription:  The iconoclastic pumpkin is…simply beautiful. I’ve painted, so far, three different variations of the pumpkin and will share in future blogs. I’m busy cutting rice paper leaves for the UNC Hospital Remembering Tree and had lots of small pieces of paper left over. Always a fan of trying a new technique, I made a tiny collage.
